Arts Jobs


Ecological Philosophy and Photography, Alan McFetridge Photography


Pleased to announce interviews for two new assistant roles. Applications for the first role closes 31 July 2021. Applications for the second role closes 31 August 2021. Strick eligibility rules apply please read below.

The successful candidate will join a rapidly expanding group in the study of environmental philosophy. The team has an ardent sense of the value that a committed group has in expanding environmental knowledge through field work and theory. Although primarily visually led with photography, the right candidates may come from other fields and/or backgrounds as the ability to focus, enjoy your work, adapt, complete tasks and think laterally are key skills. Evidence of this will help your interview.

The project began in 2016 with a Royal Photographic Society Environmental Bursary to examine the impacts of fire in the Boreal Forest and has since built a large body of photographic work on the issue. Since then a comprehensive network of global scholars and indigenous groups has grown that we collaborate with responsibly. 

Your growth will be to develop your experimentation skills, learn and apply research techniques into published outputs. Day to day running of the studio will also be a core duty. The pay is modest, however the right candidate will be interested in creating their own future here, someone ready to work at the role and explore possibilities.

The studio is in East London near Bromley by Bow station. Tucked away where four warehouse buildings give the area one of the highest concentrations of independent artists and thinkers in central london. Wheelchair access is available to the ground floor, however the studio is on the first floor with step access only. Happy to look at solutions for off site or discuss possibilities for access.

  • Environmental Research

  • Visually lead with an emphasis on publication and exhibition.

  • East London Studio Location

  • Fast growing


Applicants should be aged 16-25 years old and on Universal Credit.

The role is for 25 hours per week in a 6-month contract with holiday pay at national minimum wage.
